Pikaia Lodge's Vessels

The M.Y. Pikaia I

Pikaia I Yacht - GalapagosPikaia's exclusive 105-ft Yacht for the most complete and comfortable Day Tour experience.  A level of comfort never before achieved in Galapagos. 

The M.Y. Pikaia I is Pikaia's private 105-Ft. oceangoing exploration yacht, a former custom built steel-hull live aboard scuba diving cruiser.  Refitted in October 2015, its large dive-deck has been re-designed for an optimal land and snorkeling day tour operation.  It is the only such vessel in the Galapagos, offering a comfortable, safe and relaxing day tour experience. 

Due to its size, weight and stabilizers, guests can cruise to nearby islands without feeling seasick, as can happen on smaller, lighter day tour boats.

The M.B. Pikaia II

Pikaia II Boat - GalapagosThe Pikaia II is Pikaia's exclusively chartered 35 foot boat, designed to offer a guided coastal fishing and/or snorkeling tour experience around the island of Santa Cruz. 

The Pikaia II will take a maximum of eight Pikaia Lodge guests on day tours, where Galapagos fishermen share their traditional fishing techniques.  In the 7 night exploration program, guests could have the opportunity to hone their fishing skills using fishing rods*.  They can catch-and-release, or choose one fish to take back to the Lodge to be freshly prepared by our chefs. After fishing, guests can swim, snorkel and relax in lagoons and beaches. These spectacular and pristine sites are full of marine life, rarely visited by tourists. 

*Special conditions apply to the fishing and snorkeling programs of the M.B. Pikaia II

Fishing - Pikaia II BoatThis new fishing-tourism model has been recently approved and promoted by the National Park as a sustainable economic alternative for local fishermen, by incorporating them into eco-tourism. 

Pikaia Lodge supports this sustainable initiative and has worked with local fishermen to incorporate them into its Santa Cruz Island exploration programs. The Pikaia II fishing boat is specially-equipped for the comfort and safety of our guests.  The crew is comprised of local fishermen, who we have trained for operating to our standards. 

The M.Y. Galapagos Aggressor III

The wildest marine safari on Earth

M.Y. Agressor - GalapagosFor the adventurers.  We recommend before or after a stay in Pikaia Lodge, to take a one week live aboard dive cruise with the Galapagos Aggressor III to enjoy the most complete and exciting land & sea experience of the wonders of the Galapagos Islands. 

The Galapagos islands surrounding waters, are one of the seven underwater wonders of the world, the second largest protected Marine Reserve in the world, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site and the greatest protected shark sanctuary in the world's oceans. 

Pikaia Lodge's sleek and luxurious 105-foot oceangoing Galapagos Aggressor III is considered today one of the finest dive yachts in the world.  It was custom designed and is constantly renovated and improved with the latest state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the most comfortable, professional and safest liveaboard dive experience to its guests. 

Galapagos offers some of the most challenging and spectacular dive experiences.  Divers encounter many large pelagic species including whale sharks, schools of hammerhead sharks, sea lions, tuna, dolphins, manta rays, marine iguanas, as well as dense schools of tropical fish and many endemic species found nowhere else in the world.  It is the ultimate diver paradise and an underwater photographer’s dream.
